FishingEarth Bathurst Island Lodge

Contact FishingEarth about this adventure 0447 789 777

Bathurst Island Lodge is located on the remote south western coast of Bathurst Island. The Lodge, which is extremely isolated, is situated on the iconic ‘Barra Base’ site, which was Australia’s first ever guided barramundi sport-fishing lodge. Barra Base closed in 1998 but reopened in March 2013 as Bathurst Island Lodge following major refurbishment and is one of the best places in Australia to target the norths most iconic fish the Barramundi as well as targeting monster Black Jew big and mean Mangrove Jacks as well as most of the other tropical sportsfishing super starts.

The team at FishingEarth have fished six of the seven continents and many of the beautiful oceans & seas surrounding these amazing land masses. And the number one lesson we have collectively learned from these many 1000’s of hours fishing is that often it is the people you are with that takes your fishing adventure from a good trip to a Fishing Adventure of a lifetime.

We want to match you with a location and charter where you can relax so the ‘old world’ seems like a million miles away. And the only thing you need to worry about is… well we hope there is nothing to worry about, apart from how are you going to turn that fish of a lifetime that has just smashed your lure or fly, into a memory of a lifetime. 

Have you felt you have been talk that line ‘No, these are the best fishing tides ever!’ As FishingEarth does not have to ‘just fill’ seats on boats no matter what the fishing conditions, we pride ourselves on giving you an honest assessment of the tides and conditions. Most of us have limited windows to get our fishing adventure fix, so we work on making it as stress free as possible and find you the best adventure for the dates you have available.

FishingEarth also understand that it’s not just about catching fish… yes the fishing opportunities have to be world class, as do the guides and the equipment. The team at FishingEarth would like to welcome you to your Fishing Adventure of a lifetime at Bathurst Island Fishing Lodge.

Bathurst Island Fishing Lodge experience

Bathurst Island Lodge is located on the remote south western coast of Bathurst Island. The Lodge, which is extremely isolated, is situated on the iconic ‘Barra Base’ site, which was Australia’s first ever guided barramundi sport-fishing lodge. Barra Base closed in 1998 but reopened in March 2013 as Bathurst Island Lodge following major refurbishment. One of the many highlights at Bathurst Island Lodge is the high quality of our meal service. Our chef gets you started each morning with a range of hearty breakfast choices which include bacon & eggs, cereals, toast, fresh fruit, tea and coffee. Breakfast is served from 6.45am with the aim of having you on the water fishing by 7.30am each morning.

At an appropriate time during the day, your fishing guide will position your boat in a shaded area to prepare an on-board lunch. To enhance your experience of being away from it all, accommodation and fishing at Bathurst Island Lodge is restricted to a maximum of 12 guests. Doing so enables our experienced lodge team to provide you with a superior level of service and attention designed to make your visit totally relaxing and with the very best and most productive fishing experience possible. But, getting so far off the beaten-track doesn’t mean having to rough it, because our Lodge has chef-prepared meals, 240v power, hot showers, flushing toilets, phone & email access, plus a host of comforts and facilities rarely associated with such highly remote fishing destinations.
